Kalevi Aho: Sateen aikaan (Rain Time) - Five songs for mezzo-soprano and string quartet

Kalevi Aho’s Sateen aikaan (Rain Time), five songs for mezzo-soprano and string quartet is set to poems of a Finnish modernist Tuomas Anhava (1927-2001). The composer tells: “I tried to create a work in which the words and the music were organically one. These autumnal poems immediately began to sound as music in my mind – the poems have a very beautiful musical ring and rhythm.”
